The Hague, Netherlands, Feb. 22 (via,London). —A trnse nndercurrent lof feeling has been running through ' aU clasees In Holland for the last two j or three days. This is attributed to j public con^'firn owing to ' Germany's taction in not rejilying to the Dutch i note of protest concerning the North j Sea zone and nervousness as 10 what might result rrpm the German ' block.ide and submarine activity, jwhic'i possibly might produce an un• toward incident at any monient. j A'lthoueh vessels belonging to other ' ncutrnl states have sMffered, Dutch j .=hips up to the present have escaped jd.':mai;o, iut many Sframen-are demand 1 ins incr ->R !>od wages ow.'ng to the risks ! Some of the men decline to sail and ihavo Ifjft t'leir ships, especially those I bouml for England. Numbers of pas- sen.?ers for the Dutch East Indies have decided to paes through Germany Jtn Genoa, in order to take ship there. 1 Even the Dutch flshlns boats, by goVerr.m>:ntal order, are to be painted In the notional colors, while their j crews have been advised to carry with I t'leni evidences of their nationality . i The continued movement o^ troops J toward the various frontier! points and ton up to the present has not classed as contraband. The day passed without news of any additional merchant ship, belliger eht or neutral having fallen a victim to a German submarine, .but three small British craft are missing and fears are expressed as to their fate. Amsterdam reports two German submarines are overdue at their base, Cruxliaven, but whether they have been sunk Is not known. Traffic In th North Sea remains somewhat disorganized and Dutch and Scandinavian sallora are showing a reluctance to go to sea, owing to the menace of both submarines and mines. Reports tfom Copenhagen that traffic between Sweden and England has been discontinued temporarily are not officially confirmed. About Ravens. Many storiea are told about the raven, a bird which really ueema to have reasoiitng powers. One story re lat«a how a raven got a young bare fdr dinuer. It pounced upon the little animai. '^'ut the mother hare drove it away. Then the raven slowly retreated, pretending to be afraid, until it decoyed the hare a cohsiderah'a dia- te ice; whereupon U rose in th'j air, flew back swiftly and bore away the young hare. A similar plan wa« .idopt ed by. some ravens that wished to steal food from a dog. They teased him until he grew so angry that he chiiBed them, and then the artful birds turned sharply around, easily reached the dish before him, and carried oS the'choicer bits in triumph. As to tba raven's power of speech, the Impfos- sion is that it can talk if It will, but ft is not loquacious, and does not like to show off like a parrot. But when "- .Joes speak. It is very apt to use Its v .ord3 more appropriately than a parrot does. IDLENESS UDIIIM TO GRIME JAMES II AK.MO.NN LOVED FUN BUT SHUNNED THOUGHT OF WORK.

Clalntfi Now That Older HeadH Planned Rolibery/of tlie Yates Center ExrhauKe. Bank. James Harmon, the 2C»-year-old Neodesha boy who took part in the robber^- of the Exchange bank at Yates Center, now claims that the robbery was planned by an older man. Harmon has retained A. H. Ward, a Neb- desha attorney, to defend him. The Neodesha Sun says he told the following story of how he came to be mixed up in the affair: "He and Harry Milton were down towards Durand where they and a man he does not know, an older man, planned the robbery. The older man insisted that they do the work Ijecause he was known in town. Milton, to nerve himself, drank a full pint of whiskey, but Harmon, who does not drink, did not take any. They walked into the bank during the noon hour unmasked. Milton, who had the only revolver among them, held up the cashier and locked him in the vault. They then took all the money in sight. The silver, about $1-50, they either dropped or gave to the other fellow. He did not say. The crowd was right after them. Milton threw the revolver away and they soon surrendered. All the other money, nearly 14,000, was found on the boys. •'The cashier of the bank corroborated Harmon's story so far as what occurred in the bank. Harmon did not. show any revolver or make any threats. "Harmon's reputation here is no different from that of many other younx boys. He IJked to have a good time and t'ated work. He often boasted that his father would give him i)lenty of money and he did not have to work. He was something of a romancer, also, and the seamy side of life aiipealed to him." (ARE OF THE EVES. Health as Well HH Beauty Demands That Eyes Get Attentoin. The woman who takes care of herself should give as much attention to her eyes as she does to her skin or to her hair. In the first place after driving or being iil the dust of the city or country she should wash or bathe her eyes with tepid water. This removes tlie irritating dust or small particles, .^fter- reading or before going to bed she should bathe the eyes with salt water or tepid water to which is added a pinch of salt, and using an eye cup, will be surprised at the difference in the sparkle of the eyes, if inflamed they should be bathed several times a day. The dull, sunken eyes, the hollow circles and the sallow complexion of many womeu, is due, liowever, to complaints and diseases peculiar to women. The best thing I know tor this is Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, because it is a temperance tonic, being made of roots and herbs with pure glycerine. It establishes regularity, heals inflammation and banishes pain. Dr. Pierce publishes the ingredients on the wrapper so it is not a secret and I have seen many women cured by it and not only that, but the dull sunken eyes, the sunken cheeks and bust, liave taken on a sparkle and healthful appearance. Thousands of women have testified to having been cured of womanly diseases by this Prescription. It speedily causes all womanly troubles to disappear—compels the organs to properly perform, their natural functions, corrects displacements, overcomes irregularities, removes pain and misery at certain times and brings back health and strength to nervous, irritable and exhausted women. It banishes pain, headache,, backache, low spirits; hot flashes, dragging-down sensations, worry and sleeplessness surely and without loss of time. Kpep the bowels healthy ,by using Dr. Pierce's Pellets. They don't gripe. —Adv.

NEGLECTED KIDNEY TRDDBIE "SERIDDS SICKNESS A year and a half ago I was taken with a severe attack of kidney trouble that pained me to such an extent tliat morphine had to bel given me.

I stop«^ ped taking Inedicines for some time, later having some Swamp-Root in the house I decided to try it and felt much relieved.
